RE: The tariff classification of a CD cassette case and an auto accessory pocket from Thailand.

Dear Ms. Webster:

In your letter dated August 1, 1996, you requested a classification ruling for a CD cassette case and an auto accessory pocket.

You have submitted two samples with your request, identified as style 650709, described as an "Auto CD Cassette/Phone Organizer", consists of a cd cassette travel case designed to contain six cd's and four cassettes with a detachable battery storage compartment. The second item is an auto accessory pocket designed to be affixed to a car door. Both items are composed of nylon woven textile material. You have indicated that the samples which were submitted is one item and style and that the second item, the auto side door organizer, will be added as a promotional give-a-way to the consumer without any charge. However, for classification purposes each item will stand on its own merit.

The applicable subheading for Style 650709, the CD cassette of nylon textile material, will be 4202.92.9025, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides in part for other bags and containers, with outer surface of textile materials, other, other, of man-made fibers.

To obtain the most current information available, we suggest that you check, close to the time of shipment, the Status Report on Current Import Quotas (Restraint Levels), an internal issuance of the U.S. Customs Service, which is available for inspection at your local Customs office.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
